Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden color with a nice two finger foamy white head. Head dissipated quickly to a nice frothy cap, and left nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Belgian yeasts, clove, banana and sweet malts beneath. Smells like a Belgian ale should.
Flavor: Good yeasty phenols right up front with some banana, clove and citrus, followed by a good malty smoothness and a surprising little hops bitterness on the finish. A really tasty and well balanced ale.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with mild carbonation. Creamy texture on the tongue with that crisp hops bitterness on the finish...but it doesn't linger long.
Drinkability: A very good American interpretation of a BSPA. Lots of flavor and a great Belgian yeast profile. It's a relatively high 9% ABV, but no strong alcohol taste at all. A very easy drinking BSPA, and easy to session with a big bottle or two. Another winner from Lagunitas!
Serving type: bottle
